Who here watches that show?

I'm always very reluctant to start watching new television shows. I watch very few and for a long time didn't watch any. But I had seen lots of libertarians online say they loved it. So my wife and I decided to give it a shot. We blasted through both seasons in no time. We're hooked. Looking forward to season three.

Season 3 maybe delayed.  In a move similar to that of Frank Underwood, Netflix is demanding Tax subsidies to continue filming in Maryland.  Maryland in a move also similar to that of Frank Underwood is now threatening to seize the assets of House Of Cards.


Here is just one of many articles about the situation. http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/md-politics/maryland-delegates-threaten-to-seize-house-of-cards-property-if-filming-leaves-the-state/2014/03/27/0715a0ca-b605-11e3-8cb6-284052554d74_story.html

When he said "I got to vicepresidency without any vote... democracy is overrated"(I watched the show in Spanish, I dont know if those were the actual words or not when he was being elected vicepresident officially) that phrase was astonishing, as it shows how corruption and social skills can  easily handle government mechanisms of corruption.

He said "I'm one heartbeat away from the Presidency and not a single vote cast in my name. Democracy is so overrated."

I always find it amusing when the impeach Obama crowd gets going.  I ask them why they want Biden as president.  They don't seem to comprehend.
